I really like the Luxe, but nothing equals the Primo. Especially in that fabulous white livery, which I will order soon.

A Ut60 makes it in by 2mm on the M6F .... just misses the heat sink ... however, with a UT60 in there you'd have a helluva time getting to ya 8 pin EPS plug or ya MPCIA Combo II thingie

All I can say is Noooooooooooo! I just bought a Primo three months ago and I really wanted white. Gonna have bite this bullet, too, I guess.


White would have been nice ...

But there are always ways to make the Phantek Enthoo Primo look just how you want it to. wink.gif





Now to just transfer all the measurements from the template and start making the acrylic inserts for the case. Not sure if I'm going to go with the same orange as the radiator ... or MDPC Titanium Grey ... for the insert color.

If you're going to mention your clearance issues, it should probably be made clear that you are talking about a 140mm series rad (280, 420).

There's plenty of room for most motherboard / ram combinations for a UT60 or even a monsta 120mm series rad (240, 360, 480) up top.

The heatsinks on my RIVBE are 40mm, and G.Skill Ripjaws are 41mm tall, so if I wanted to put a 480 monsta up top in push-pull it would fit with zero issues & more than 10mm clearance on everything.

That said, a 480 monsta in push-pull up top would have cost me the top two 5.25" drive bays and it wouldn't have left enough room to fit my Photon 270 / D5 pump res between it and the monsta in the bottom, so I didn't go that thick up top myself, but it would be an easy fit otherwise.

Pro looks nice too! And is that a 200mm fan in the front? Looks far too big to be a 140mm
post #2397 of 18433
Hey guys! I've just received my Enthoo and I'm unpacking it as we speak (or w/e), but when I got the box, there was something rolling around inside. When I opened it up there was a single screw outside the case. Any ideas where it may have come from? All screws are in the back as well as the PCI lane things. It looks like this:

Thanks : )

Congrats on new case! thumb.gif
That thumb screw could be from any of a number of places.
  • 2x on each side panel
  • 4x on Reservoir bracket
  • HDD cages
  • Pump mounting bracket
  • and many other places
You will find a plastic case with more of them along with other screws. (upper left)

This may be true on the RIVEBE but I don't see the relevance in the context of the M6F specific post. I noted three but there are actually six issues / potential issues with an M6F and any width UT60 in P/P





1. The context of the poster's remark was visual ..... "not wanting to cover up the pretty M6F MoBo".... the only relevant dimension "visually" is thickness.... you may be able to fit the thicker rad in there but you won't be able to "see" anything behind it. I'm measuring about 29 mm from the bottom of the XT45 to the Heat Sink ... with the 27mm fan, it "misses" blocking the view of the Top of the MoBo by 2mm. Add the 15mm and the top 13mm of the MoBo is blocked.

2. Forgot to mention this one, but the M6F is equipped with a diagnostic digital LCD that displays the error or Q-Codes. The bottom of this display is 1.5" (38mm) below my XT45..... add the pull fan (27mm) and the extra thickness of the UT60 and you are at 42mm. So access to a key feature is taken from you with a UT60 .... yes it fits, both 140mm and 120mm will fit, but again "visually, you will not be able to "see" the diagnostic panel. Start button gets difficult perhaps but shud be easy enough to press if ya gotta.

3. The plug for the EPS cable is as inaccessible with the 120mm width rads as it is with the 140mm. Look at the pic above which shows the cable clearing the rad but once ya put the fans on, how would you access the plug at the end of it. The extra 10mm you get from using a smaller rad is not enough for you to slip a hand behind it and remove / replace the EPS cable plug.

4. If when ya built it ya decided ya didn't need wireless ..... or if after ya built it, ya found out that having both wireless and wired "active" at the same time doesn't work and ya want to take it out, you can''t get ya hand in there to install / uninstall the unit.

5. It's obvious that the RAM fits but if ya wanted to re-seat, by using the levers, it's tough access when in the up position..... of course you can press in place and whereas I always prefer to do both tro minimize warping, the N6F backplate should help here.

6. I think it will fit once done but installing / uninstalling ya fittings / tubing for the MoBo VRM block becomes difficult with the thicker rad.
